Summer is finally here! For most of us, it is the most awaited season of the year. Well, at least for us it is. There is always so much to do and look forward to in this weather! So many social events. Lots and lots of people to meet and hang out with during the evening barbecues or weekend parties for those of us who can’t stay away from the fun summer drinks.
Whatever your plans are for this summer, let them be fun. Let them be loud and wild. Make a positive statement in whatever you do and make sure whoever is around you feels all the positive vibrations you are emitting There are only but millions and millions of ways you can do that but! Here is a fun and loud one! One that no one will miss! Novelty socks! Yeah that’s right! You don’t need the layers and layers of ‘the in thing’ this season. So, how about you rock out and show off them socks that are oh so fun to figure out!
Novelty socks have become very popular lately mostly known for their witty, funny sayings. The fun patterns and hilarious images on them. My first pair of novelty socks was embroided, “If you can read this, please bring me wine”. I got them at a time when I had just started working at a new place. A place where I felt so overworked and underappreciated, aye? Raise your glasses up if you can relate to this! My pair of socks was so accurate!. I needed someone who appreciated me enough to read the bottom of my feet and get me bottles and bottles of funken wine ya know?
You are probably wondering why on earth anyone would want to make their wine orders from the bottom of their feet. But, here are some of the reasons why everyone should own a pair (or hundreds) of novelty socks.
Relatable: Do you ever scroll down your Instagram or twitter feeds and relate to most if not all the memes? The laugh that comes afterwards followed by ‘oh this is so true” before tagging every one of your friends and taking a screenshot of the meme? Exactly! You get that same effect with your novelty socks. You get to own a piece of clothing that you can relate to. Laugh about and even better, you get a reason to be even more awkward by taking pictures of your feet and sending them to your family and friends. Which by the way is totally normal and sane thing to do-thank you 2017.
New friendships! In a way, the novelty socks tend to be an icebreaker. They play a big role on how strangers perceive you and your character. If you are ‘weird’ and fun enough to wear the novelty socks, you know it’s totally fine and normal to have strangers comment on your socks and share a laugh! Don’t be surprised if your ‘pizza is bae’ socks get you a bae that wants to buy you pizza and wear matching socks with you.
Uniqueness: I once googled how to get on the Guinness world book. Well, to get earn a spot on there, I suppose one must be extremely exceptional with some unique abilities. A slot on this book will make you standout. It will give you a reason to practice for a solid signature for the many times people will want an autograph from you. Well, the Novelty socks will not require you to be an expert on your own signature. However, the novelty socks will surely make you stand out in a crowd of boring black and white socks. I mean, you’re a hero in a world of people trying so hard to fit in as ‘normal’. Who does not want to be a hero?
Confidence! The way we dress says a lot about who we are as a person. The level of confidence in ourselves as individuals as well as how comfortable we are around others. In most cases, if not all. People who wear these wacky crazy socks tend to be very confident. They are individuals who are readily willing to venture into new horizons which is always fun and adventurous. You will also realize that others around you will expect you to be a crazy nut who would go sky diving at midnight in a storm. That sounds pretty cool though, doesn’t it?
This summer, I’m encouraging us to be wild, Fun, crazy and audaciously bold enough to get colorful on our feet! More importantly, let’s have fun with this super fun look!
